    Wife and I want to book a stay for next spring (2018). When do "specials" come ou and if I book now can I get these special prices "after the fact"? Both retired and every penny counts, what is our best strategy?

    Hi Craig,

    How exciting to know you are planning a vacation to Walt Disney World Resort for next spring. The flowers will be in full bloom during Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. You do not want to miss it!

    Mickey always tries to help our budgets with incredible Special Offers, like discounts on room accommodations, or Theme Park Tickets, and reduced or even free Dining Plan. At this time, discounts are available for this coming fall, but I am sure in the next few months, some specials for next year may appear.

    I always tell my friends and family to book a vacation based on their current budget and travel plans. And if a special happens to come out, simply call your travel agent or a Vacation Planning Specialist at (407) 939-1936. Sometimes, you may have to adjust your dates or Resort hotel selection, since availability is limited.

    One more tip: the whole Resort accepts Disney Gift Cards for payments, even for reservations. Some stores like Costco or Sam's Club sell them at a slight discount. Happy planning!
